I will have to look into the withholding when school comes around. I claim zero on mine right now as a recommendation from my parents as my brother has been burned a couple times by claiming wrong and owing come tax time.

As for the Fred Meyer, it is funny you say that. I work at a Fred Meyer fuel station as a fuel clerk. I know all too well about the rewards and I use them often. I don't eat out much so the gift cards idea doesn't really work for me. I do appreciate the idea though.

That is funny, my local FM fuel clerks have been surprised/freaked a couple times when I roll in, buy 70 gallons of diesel filling both tanks and a 55 gal drum, and spend $210. I guess that's unusual. I do it about once a month.

Our station is right on the edge of town near farm country so we get guy spending $300+ on fuel almost daily...

Hang in there. The easiest way to look at it is this, no matter what decision you make there will be costs associated with it. Sometimes paying a little more in the long run is worth it for happiness and peace of mind.

Don't do it, you will always regret it. With the money you've spent and will never get back it will always bother you to the point where you buy another one and spend even more money to get it close to the truck you once had... it's a viscous game!

F150 Flareside
As of now the truck isn't being sold. I am currently working out a trade with a co-worker for tires. Likely gonna trade my 33" Duratracs for his 31" Duratracs and some cash. His are low miles like mine, but I still have a bit more tread so we have to figure it out.

1995F150XLT4x4 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
You can get rid of it, but you know the memories you had with it will stay with you. That is what will make it so hard. Personally, I'd never be able to do something like that because of how attached I am to my truck. In the end it all comes down to what you want to do man, but I wouldn't part with her! You might regret it!

EDIT: Just saw you aren't getting rid of it! Hooray!
